Never heard of such before:nuhuh: ,.......maybe to create a kind of putty to fill up little holes in the wood:? ?
I sometimes do this , but mix with the tiny woodchips from my lathe ,.......filling up the weight holes in my lures this way .

No, I don't think it helps. Epoxy has the best adhesion when nothing is added to it.

When I was reading up on boat building I heard many people mix regular flour for making fillets to cover up imperfections on joints and filling holes the collor match to pine or fir was unbelieveable. good luck!!!!

Like Diemai, I have mixed fine sawdust from my band saw for filling holes. It becomes more of a putty and isn't nearly as sticky after doing this. So, I would not trust it anywhere I needed strength.

In UK, cigarette ash is more expensive than the epoxy! Rp94,000 for pack of Marlborough.

9 bucks a pack - WOW.
I remember people in the USA saying " If they hit a dollar, I'm quitting!". I think they were about 2 bucks a pack when I quit.

Sinyo, that is very interesting. When you poured the ashes on the epoxy after putting it on wood was it the 5 min epoxy or the 30 minute epoxy? Also what did it do to the surface texture?

Cigarette ashes mixed with epoxy.....Sounds like that would be a smokin' lure:flame:

still 5 min epoxy...the texture smoother than normal
save lil' time for sanding
ps: I used b/w 5 min epoxy not clear epoxy
